Yesterday, the Grade 4 classes were treated to an amazing day at Rocky Mountain House National Historic Site. We spent the day re-enacting the fur trade! Each class played a different part in the story. We were the Piikani First Nation, and our guide took us through the forest along the river to teach us what life was like during the fur trade for this group. Other classes represented the Cree First Nation, the Metis, the Hudson Bay Company, and the NorthWest Company. We all met at the end of our day for trading. It was a fantastic way to gain a deeper understanding of this important time in Alberta’s history! Please check out your child’s digital portfolio for their reflection on this fabulous field trip.
